Lea and Matt

Today on Polka Dot Bride, Sydney photography studio Sugarlove Pictures have shared with us the beautiful beach wedding of Lea and Matt. Matt’s proposal was a grand one- a plane trailing a sign “Lea, Will You Marry Me?” viewed as Lea and Matt dined at their favourite cafe.

The wedding was held at Coolum Beach in Queensland, Lea and Matt chose to have a small beachside celebration with 40 guests.

Lea and Matt’s celebration was held  The Angkasa, a luxurious four bedroom home set in tropical rainforest and inspired by Bali. The guests also celebrated the reception at the house.

Lea and her girls got ready for the big day in The Tropical Suite

Beautiful blooms by Mandi Backhouse of The Flower Pod ([email protected]), plenty of pink bubbles accompanied the girls getting dressed!

In preparation for the warm weather, guests were supplied with carved wooden fans.

Lea’s gown was an Essense design from Trenz Boutique and featured stunning beading on tulle over ivory satin. Lea wore shoes from Panache

Lea wore earrings by Say Bella from Trenz Boutique and a bracelet from Natasha Lee Designs. Lea and Matt’s rings were from Jacobsen Jewellery. Hair and makeup was done by Beauty On The Move.

The bridesmaids wore wrist corsages of cream roses.

Each bridesmaid was given a gift tied with a bow and their initial, consisting of a pearl brooch and earrings which completed their wedding day look, and a MOR Peony Flower Soap.

The bridesmaids wore gowns made to order from S&M Creations (0409 953 792)

The girls carried bouquets of David Austin and Julia roses in shades of cream and dusty pink. Added to the bouquet and woven into the flowergirl’s crown were pink pepper berries.

Lea’s son Josh played a big part in the wedding day.


The ceremony was held at Point Arkwright. Turtles swam under the deck as the couple said their vows.

Matt wore a stylish grey suit by Tramps For Men (02 4226 5933) with brown sandals whiles his groomsmen were dressed in white shirts and grey pants from Suiting You.

With Josh, Lea and Matt held a sand ceremony to celebrate their new family.

    Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! My dress designer recommended that I use Julia roses for my bouquet too and I wasn’t sure about them until I saw these photos. They look amazing!
